Blue Star Programme
Since September our school have been working on the Blue Star Programme. We have had lots of fun completing PowerPoints on EU countries, EU artists and inventors, to learn about the culture of EU. We all made a European dish to bring in for everyone to taste. We also researched the foundation of the parliament and how it works. The goal of the programme is to teach everyone to understand and know how the EU affects our lives through projects and activities.
We have completed a series of tasks and projects in order to complete the programme. We are also asked to invite a local Irish MEP to come and visit our school to talk about what it’s like to be a member of the European Parliament.
At the end of the year we are also asked to have a European day to showcase our projects that we have completed during the year.
I really enjoyed completing the projects to go with the Blue Star Programme and I think everyone enjoyed making EU cuisine from EU countries and I enjoyed tasting everyone else’s dishes.
